We were very excited to host the very first #AnnieSloanLate Event Friday, November 21st, which was a worldwide event held by the Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® Stockist to support local business', support local charity, and have fun!
We were proud to support St. Jude Children's Research Hospital with our raffle donations and collected $250 for the great cause. We also had hourly giveaways of workshops and paint.
Our grand prize raffle winner, Roisin Preble (below), won a gift bag filled with Annie Sloan products. She was a very happy camper and it was so neat to find out that her father presented an award to the founder of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital way back in the day!
While people were shopping and enjoying the festive atmosphere, we did live painting demonstrations, such as stenciling Christmas gift paper for your packages (or any packaging really!)
A sample of the 102 Workshop boards (a winter themed of course!)
(Look at that Annie Sloan Craqueleur on the kitty! Not winter themed, but this kitty could be someone's Christmas present!)
Molly Skivington from Unfolded was visiting us for Annie Sloan Late and it was great having her around the demo table.
Molly made beautiful custom colors and the customers loved it!! Annie's Chalk Paint® colors mix so beautifully and it was intriguing to watch.
While Molly custom mixed color sticks, Joy repurposed old ornaments into some fun, polka dotted schemes with her favorite custom color green (1 pt Olive to 2 pt English Yellow).
Even our workshop tree has repurposed ornaments (made out of old bulbs, painted with Emperor's Silk, waxed, and added wire to hang them)
It was a wonderful evening and we are so grateful for all who came out to enjoy the festivities! We have amazing customers who are so supportive, fun, and just downright awesome!
